Bing! (Not Chandler)

I have a pretty long and spotted history of sharing military radio shows with you, and here's another one that's been almost lost to the sands of time.  And it features the great voice of Christmas, Bing Crosby!  I shared this out for you back in 2011 after recording it in 2010, so I don't know how great the bitrate is, but you'll enjoy it for the spoken word bits, not the music.  Help yourself to the double LP A Bing Crosby Christmas For Today's Army/The Sounds Of Christmas With The United States Army Band And Soldiers Chorus (US Army Recruiter 2xLP, Stereo, 1973).

Because Christmas just wouldn't seem right w/o some crooning golfer chiming in, right? Thanks, Ernie!
